MacStadium's private clouds run on dedicated Apple Mac hardware. Private clouds enable quick deployment and easy scale-up while staying compliant with Apple’s EULA.
With a MacStadium private cloud you have everything you need for true automation. Dynamically provision VMs of any OS, pool resources to get the most out of your physical infrastructure, and gain efficiency by cloning VMs instead of manually re-imaging individual Macs. In addition to bare metal cloud environments, MacStadium offers all macOS virtualization platforms -- Orka, Anka, and VMware. With effortless deployment, infinite scalability and unmatched security, MacStadium's private clouds are the perfect solution for DevOps or SaaS use cases that require macOS, Xcode or Safari.

Work with our experts to create your perfect cloud
Reduce costs vs. DIY solutions and get fixed monthly billing
Securely connect to public clouds or internal networks
Orka (Orchestration with Kubernetes on Apple) is a virtualization layer for Mac build infrastructure based on Docker and Kubernetes technology. Orka offers the first and only solution for orchestrating macOS in a cloud environment using Kubernetes on genuine Apple hardware.
With Orka, Apple OS development teams can use container technology features just like they do for non-Apple workloads. Because it’s built on Kubernetes, Orka provides access to standard tools like KubeCTL, KubeDashboard, Autoscaling, etc. to drive Mac infrastructure with built-in tools that you already have.
Orka is specifically designed for Apple hardware but based on standard cloud orchestration tools. With Orka, MacStadium users get a more software-driven, reliable, and high-performance experience with their MacStadium hardware.
Integrated with popular CI tools such as Jenkins, GitLab, Buildkite, Orka’s plugins allow developers to use the tools they already know and love to work seamlessly with their build infrastructure.
Anka is a powerful but simple virtualization engine for continuous integration on macOS. Anka is built for Mac and uses the macOS hypervisor framework with external registry and controller nodes. It is designed specifically to accommodate Mac-based CI workflows, and Anka easily integrates with existing container-based DevOps CI pipelines.
With MacStadium Apple infrastructure combined with Anka virtualization software you can run on-demand macOS VMs instances like you would in container-based DevOps workflows and CI/CD. Manage Anka build nodes, VM instances, templates/tags, and logs with the Anka Controller dashboard. Anka Registry provides centralized storage for your team's macOS VM templates and tags.
With a MacStadium private cloud running on VMware, you get access to features like Linked Clones, Instant Clones, and enterprise scalability. Programmatically manage VM creation, changes, and deletion with the vSphere automation API.
MacStadium VMware private cloud environments are deployed with VMware Enterprise Plus licensing which includes ESXi, vSphere, and the vCenter app for efficient management and scaling.
Don't need one of our virtualization platforms or have your own DIY solution? No problem. MacStadium bare metal clouds come with the same components and features as our virtualized clouds, just without the virtualization software.
MacStadium offers a wide variety of machines from Intel-based Mac mins and Mac Pros to the new Apple silicon. Let us know if you have specific hardware requirements, or our sales engineers can help build a cloud environment tailored to your needs.
We transform genuine Apple Mac Pro and Mac mini machines into enterprise-grade servers. Our patented upgrades add redundant A/B power, redundant 10G Ethernet, and redundant fibre channel ports to enable SAN storage.
With our large inventory, we can expand your cloud quickly and infinitely. Our Mac experts are available around the clock to discuss and plan for your growth. We’ll make the deployment and scale-up of your Mac cloud easy.
Whether you use an internal SSD or an external flash SAN, your cloud will be responsive. With our all-flash SAN, we can scale infinitely as your needs grow.
Economical, mixed-drive NetApp SAN provides reliable network storage for large amounts of archive data. If you have a need for a hybrid-SAN arrangement, we’re ready to build that as well.
All-flash, high-performance Pure Storage SAN arrays are the perfect solution for private clouds. Pure SAN is highly redundant, encrypts all data at rest, scales up easily, and enables advanced VMware cloud features like Instant Clones and Dynamic Resource Scheduling (DRS) to help you get the most from your cloud.
Every MacStadium cloud deploys with dedicated Cisco ASA firewalls that allow you to setup VPN tunnels to public clouds and internal networks. Setup whitelisting and monitor traffic to ensure the security of your cloud.
Your cloud is always available with dedicated IPv4 address space. All clouds include a /28 or /30 IP subnet block, giving you 16 static, public IP addresses to use as you see fit. You can add more IPs or set up your own DHCP server.
This modern data center architecture enables 4x (Active-Active-Active-Active) redundancy and internal transfer speeds of up to 160 Gbps. This super-fast network enables host-to-host transfers and use of NFS for high-speed SAN access.
We provide access to install images for over a dozen common OSs in a dedicated data store for easy VM image creation.
Because our clouds run on genuine Mac hardware, you can virtualize any OS including macOS, Linux, or Windows.
MacStadium's private clouds are certified ISO 27001, which is the highest certification available for IaaS providers. This is the same level certification as AWS or Azure.
MacStadium’s US data centers maintain SOC 1 (Type 2), SOC 2 (Type 2), and SOC 3 compliance, which have stricter requirements than ISO with respect to physical and data center-level cyber security.
All of our Tier III and Tier IV data centers include robust physical access control and are continuously monitored to ensure cloud security at all times.
We can add more security features on request including isolated racks, VM ecryption via HyTrust, direct connects, E/W firewalls via VMware NSX and more.
No data usage costs; in or out. Network traffic is not throttled or groomed in any way. Connectivity includes a very fast 1Gbps to the internet and 10Gbps on the internal network. Use as much as you need without affecting your monthly flat rate billing.
We provide 24x7 support with free remote hands in all of our data centers. Rather than an internal data center team with limited Mac experience, your company can rely on advice from our experienced Tier 3 Cloud Engineering team.
Our Mac experts are available to discuss and plan for your growth. We’ll assist in the implementation of your plans to scale efficiently and effortlessly.
Monitor your cloud with LogicMonitor. Track every host, watch performance numbers, set custom alerts, monitor every packet and keep an eye on every bit.
Control billing, manage users, and share documents securely in MacStadium's admin dashboard. Get in touch with engineering and support teams 24/7 via secure ticket.
We provision dedicated hardware for use only in your cloud. This means you get full, root-access control to every aspect of your cloud to configure and secure as needed.
With five data centers around the world and new data centers coming on line all the time, we have the footprint to support global growth and redundancy wherever you need it.
Tier III and IV data centers with redundant network, power, monitoring help us deliver 99.99% uptime and proactive management. Provision a private cloud at multiple our locations for geographic redundancy.
